Free COVID-19 Testing Continues

Loudoun County will continue to offer free weekly COVID-19 testing in December, on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at a different location each week.

Health officials encourage anyone who thinks they may have been exposed to COVID-19 to get tested, along with anyone exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue and a new loss of taste or smell. Anyone who traveled for the Thanksgiving holiday or plans to travel for the December holidays and gather with family and friends is also encouraged to get tested a few days before and after traveling or gathering in groups.

Testing events are free and open to all with no age or residency requirements and no prescriptions or appointments necessary. A person does not have to exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 to be tested. No COVID-19 vaccine will be available at these events.

The events will be: 

  • Dec. 7: Dulles South Recreation & Community Center, 24950 Riding Center Drive, South Riding
  • Dec. 14: Franklin Park, 17501 Franklin Park Drive, Purcellville
  • Dec. 21: Claude Moore Park, 46150 Loudoun Park Lane in Sterling

    Testing is great is people want to do it. But least not take the focus off of preventive measures. Eat a healthful diet. Take your meals at regular intervals to stabilize your metabolism. Get up early & go to bed before midnight. Vary your activities. Get plenty of sunshine & natural exercise. Keep a positive outlook. With any luck, we’ll all get through this. Happy Hanukkah Loudoun!
